Latin In The Park

EDM number 2016 in 2007-08, proposed by Tom Brake on 10/07/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Adult education and Cultural heritage.

That this House welcomes the initiative of the Iris Project, Latin in the Park, as an excellent opportunity for people from all backgrounds to learn Latin and about ancient culture free of charge in a friendly and relaxed setting; recognises that the project enables adults and families to explore various aspects of ancient culture, such as women in the ancient world, religion, the history of the Roman Republic and other subjects; further recognises that Latin may be viewed as an elite area of study discouraging wider participation; and draws attention to the fact that this initiative promotes access to the classics amongst all and any local communities.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
